Apps that support the Android PIP feature can now use it when running inside WSA. Having the option to use apps in windowed mode and taking advantage of the useful Windows resize and snap features allows for a more flexible and efficient multitasking experience when using Android apps.

The full list of changes looks as follows.

  • Picture-in-picture mode supported
  • A new “Partially running” system setting added to WSA Settings app, which runs the subsystem with minimal resources but apps launch quicker than “As needed” mode
  • Linux kernel updated to 5.15.78
  • Improvements to platform reliability
